2021 Bucharest Summit: Cooperation for Development

MediaUno Press Group of Bucharest, Romania and the Romanian National Institute of Statistics, supported by the Snagov Palace, organise the fourth event of the series ”Together We Protect Romania” – ”2021 Bucharest Summit: Cooperation for Development”, which will take place on 24-28 May 2021 at the Snagov Palace as well as online, on the ZOOM platform.

Digi24 TV is the exclusive media partner of the event, which comprises 18 panels on areas of major interest. The panels will be attended by over 200 speakers from Romania and abroad.

The speeches delivered and the discussions held in the framework of the Summit will be broadcast on the Facebook page and the Youtube channel of MediaUno Press Group and will also be circulated to the National Institute of Statistics and other partners of the event.

The summit will be opened by Ms. Anca Dana Dragu, President of the Senate of Romania.

For the East-European countries, integration into the European Union represented a chance to an accelerated development, through access to European funds and cooperation instruments that are only available to EU Member States.

The reduction of economic gaps compared to Western Europe has been spectacular, with a positive effect not only for each Member State, but also for the entire geographical region. Even countries that are currently candidates for EU membership have benefited from the effect of EU accession of their neighbour countries, the example of the latter being a strong motivation for implementing reforms and finalising accession negotiations. European cooperation and solidarity were once again highlighted by the reaction of the Member States to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to help recover the economic and social damage caused by the pandemic, the European Commission, the European Parliament and the EU leaders have agreed on a Recovery Plan that will ensure a way out of the crisis and will pave the way for a greener, more digital and more resilient Europe. This is the largest EU-funded incentive package in history, with a total value of EUR 1.8 billion.

The participants to the “2021 Bucharest Summit: Cooperation for Development” will look for answers to the following questions:

  1. How does Romania want to invest the EUR 30 billion under the Recovery Plan?
  2. What are the plans of the other EU Member States in the region?
  3. What are the priority infrastructure projects for Eastern Europe?
  4. What measures are being considered to ensure the energy security of Southeast Europe?
  5. What role can digitalisation play in bridging the gap between Western and Eastern Europe?
